1830 Derby Street
Just down the street from the Berkeley Bowl, you’ll find this brown shingle Craftsman ready to welcome you home. It has all the requisites of a Berkeley Craftsman…. Great details, box beams, built-ins and two fireplaces, including a clinker brick fireplace in the dining room.
A classic renovation – with permit – has updated all the systems and brought out the best. A large living room with vaulted ceiling opens onto the dining room and updated kitchen – with custom cabinets, quartz countertops, and breakfast bar. Three bedrooms and two baths (yes, two) give you the extra space you need to grow from wherever it is you start.
You have a light open feeling throughout – surrounded by native gardens. Two bedrooms open onto a landscaped backyard with a large flagstone patio interspersed with native ground covers. Essentially, it’s two outdoor rooms for dining and entertaining and a private garden for contemplation. This is Berkeley, after all. Indeed, your own Berkeley oasis … 4 blocks to BART, a short walk to campus … and 15 minutes to San Francisco,
